More of the Strange and Unusual

strange, oddities, unusualMaybe I have too much free time, who knows.  However, I seem to be able to amuse myself quite easily with search engines and wandering around the Internet.  There is so much information out there, so many things to experience and learn.  So many people’s minds to peer into.  What are people up to.  What are they thinking.  What swirls around the heads of billions and billions of people is quite amazing, interesting, unusual, bizarre, or informative. The Internet is an endless flow of human thoughts.  Take your chances and follow me on today’s journey.

Odd, unusual, downright strange or unnerving news at UPI.  Some strike it right with a fantastic find of $1.4 million dollars of gold in an ex-Iraqui tank or the mother lode of fear when a boater gets trapped amidst a pod of killer whales attacking a sea lion.  Amazing but true.
